Hi Calvin...

McMaster Carr sells 4'X8' sheets of the stuff for about 75$ . Its high 
quality stuff ( no impurities) but..... try considering an optional 
route of building a MMC cap before spending time, money, and frustration 
on a home-built cap. I must admit there is a bit of satisfaction to see 
a homebuilt cap work in a tesla coil application, but when the pendulum 
swings the other way ....  there is alot of frustration when the thing 
blows up ( and it WILL ).
